So...FI and I went to look at wedding bands yesterday. I know this is a decision I'll have to make on my own, but figured it might help posting here too. I am torn between a simple thin, knife's edge, platinum band and a knife's edge channel set platinum band. There's a good $1500 difference for the diamonds, but I really adore this band.
FI told me that I should get the more expensive one if that's what I like because I'll be wearing it my whole life, "so that works out to less than 12 cents per day." haha. I understand that it's an investment. I guess I'm just uncomfortable spending the money on myself, knowing we're paying for the wedding, the honeymoon, etc. Has anyone else struggled with this?
I do like both bands very much. I guess my thinking is: I like both so I should buy the less expensive, though I do like the channel-set one better. I think I also have guilt about already having an incredibly sparkly and expensive ring already...
